International Award Winner and Performer
After winning Asia's greatest magic contest, The Busan International Magic Festival, in 2006 as a high school student, Jeki began winning international contests like a comet. His magic was innovative, inspired other magicians, and roused applause from audiences around the globe with its fresh originality.
In 2009, Jeki won a close-up magic award from the International Brotherhood of Magicians, the world’s largest organization of magicians.
Since then, Jeki and his magic have wowed audiences in England, France, Sweden, Italy, Japan, China, and many other countries including Scotland where, as a member of SNAP, one of Korea’s biggest magic shows, he was invited to perform at the famed Edinburgh Festival.
Jeki has also graced the stage of the incredibly popular hit show America’s Got Talent. Over 13 million people watched him perform his own unique style of close-up magic before an impressed panel of celebrity judges. Even the infamous Simon Cowell was left stunned by what he had just witnessed. Though Jeki didn’t continue on in the competition, he left the stage having won the hearts of a nation. “Love your laugh”, “(F)reaking awesome”, “I love his giggle”, and “Jeki is so cool” are just a few of the comments that hit social media afterward.
Not only was Jeki able to leave with his head held high, but, he also left crowned with the title “cutest magician of all time” (courtesy of America’s Got Talent by way of Twitter).
